Motorcyclists killed in head-on crash in Ayutthaya
Two young men are dead after their motorcycles collided head-on on a flyover in Muang Ayutthaya on Thursday night.
Pol Capt Suchart Yoddamnone, deputy inspector at the district police station, said one of the bikers – Atthasit Thongnil, 27, an Ayutthaya Waterworks Authority electrician – had been driving against the traffic flow.
He ran into another motorcycle driven by Ayutthaya Technical College student Nanthawat Saengkham, 20, at 10pm in the Bangkok-bound lane of the Asia Highway at the Kilometre 24 marker. Both were killed.
Nanthawat’s friend Thanadol Pengpit, 21, told police five of them were returning home to Uthai district, each on his own motorcycle, when Nanthawat sped ahead.
The friends only caught up with him at the scene of the accident and found him already dead.
